Recent Chocolate Hole reviews

  • Great Cozy Home!

    "Wonderfully comfy property overlooking Chocolate Hole Bay. Rooms are large and there is plenty of space to spread out in. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are comfortable. Liked sitting on the deck in the evenings and watching the lights of the cruise ships go by or hanging out in the hot tub. Short drive to beaches and restaurants. Will definitely stay here again!"

  • Once again at Seascape

    "This was our return trip to Seascape. We absolutely love everything about it. The location is wonderful. Coffee every morning on one of the decks with the bananaquits and hummingbirds. The pool after a long day of snorkeling. The house is equipped with all the cooking utensils you would ever need. The house provides a very comfortable atmosphere. We will be back again next July!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "My family of 5 stayed at Villa Mar De Amores for 8 fabulous days. The house sits high upon the hill with the most gorgeous views of Chocolate Hole. The house is fully equipped with everything you could want or need in a vacation rental. We grilled out almost every evening and enjoyed eating at the outside dining area and admiring the view. Our kids enjoyed the pool while we prepared dinner. We have 3 teenage sons and we had plenty of room in the house. The house is very spacious and a grocery store is not very far from the property. We spent the week exploring beaches and the island and it was all perfect. St. John is definitely a little piece of paradise. I spoke with Claudia several times on the phone before renting and then she was quick to answer any emails I sent to her. She was wonderful to work with. The entire experience of renting, receiving information, etc. was entirely positive. Coolers and beach chairs are available at the house and we packed a picnic lunch everyday and explored a new beach. The only negative thing about the whole trip was having to pack up to come home. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

  • Had it made in paradise!

    "Our first trip to the Virgin Islands couldn't have been more perfect!!! Beautiful accommodations, gorgeous view, relaxing pool and patio, surrounded by lush landscaping, and everything you need to relax and enjoy the island right there at Blue Agave!! Our air conditioned room was lovely and perfect for rest and romance. We were in a great location, not only for the view, but close to town and close to many of the island's top rated beaches. We explored a new beach every day, seeing spectacular marine life as we snorkeled, and returned to enjoy perfect evenings at the villa ...whether we ate there or dined out. We enjoyed the visits from the birds and other wildlife as we relaxed in the pool or just sat on the patio and marveled at the beautiful sunsets each evening. Even the view from our bedroom was beautiful to wake up to each morning!! Ted and Debra, have thought of everything to make a perfect getaway a dream come true!!! Don't waste another minute, reserve your getaway and hop on the plane!!!"

Chocolate Hole Travel Tips

Seasons to Visit Chocolate Hole Vacation Rentals

Chocolate Hole is a small community on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Its Caribbean location results in a year-round warm tropical climate. Temperatures average 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit through most of the year, climbing to the mid-90s in the warmer summer months. Technically, the summer season is from June to October and the winter goes from December to April but there really isn’t much seasonal difference. Some people prefer to visit during the milder winter months as it allows them an opportunity to escape from the freezing northern hemisphere weather. Rain showers occur throughout the year and generally are a welcome relief from the heat. The showers tend to be short lived and occur during the late afternoon or evening. Occasionally, you may wake in the morning to the sound of rain and by the time you are up for breakfast, the skies will have clear. The only downside of St. John’s climate is that it is subject to seasonal hurricanes which occur occasionally in the late summer and fall months. Most often, they occur during August and September but they have been known to develop as early as June or sweep through in October.

Attractions near Chocolate Hole Resort Rentals

St. John is unique in that two-thirds of the island is protected National Park. This has allowed the island to retain its natural charm and assets, and avoid commercialization that is so common in the Caribbean. The Reef Bay Trail is a winding hiking trail on St. John where you can explore the island and is a must for nature lovers. Take along your binoculars and camera so that you can capture your sightings of the birds and wildlife along the trail. You can also join up a guided tour of the National Park which is both informative and a wonderful nature experience.

The Virgin Islands are known for their magnificent coral reefs, wrecks and scuba diving attractions. A number of dive schools on St. John have daily diving charters to the various dive sites. If you’d like to upgrade your dive qualification while on holiday, you can join a specialty wreck, deep or night dive course. If you don’t want to spend all your time under the water, join a cruise that takes you snorkeling instead. Many of the reefs are quite shallow so you can still have a wonderful interactive experience with the marine life without having to rig up all your scuba gear. You can also join a unique snuba diving excursion where you don’t need any certification.

Sailing is another popular pastime on St. John. Cruises and yacht charters can be arranged at one of the harbors and this is a wonderful way to explore the Virgin Islands. If you’d prefer to stick closer to the coast, join up with a sea kayak excursion and follow the coastline to secluded cloves and beaches. Deep sea and sport fishing charters can take you out to the deep waters to catch game fish.
